Kevin Shattenkirk and Victor Hedman are possible options, just to throw some names out there. It's debatable if Shattenkirk is really a top-pairing guy but he would certainly be an upgrade over a lot of our current D. Hedman might be gone if TB somehow re-signs Stamkos.
lol Hedman? Talk about untouchable.
He's more valuable to TB than Stamkos.
Either we take a big risk and trade for a soon to be UFA. (Buff, Yandle, Shattenkirk)
Or we overpay at free agency.
People need to get out of la la land where they expect playoff teams...in our division...who are directly competing with us...to deal us there best players.
